Delasin to be Honored in Phillipines

LPGA Rookie of the Year Dorothy Delasin will be honored on Jan. 18th as the 2000 Athlete of the Year in the Phillipines. Delasin plans to leave for Manila following this week's season-opening Your Life Vitamins LPGA Classic in Orlando, Fl.
Phillipines president Joseph Estrada will present the award to Delasin who received 55 of the 60 available votes. While in Manila, Delsasin will also receive the key to the city from the mayor.
Delasin won the 2000 Giant Eagle LPGA Classic, defeating Pat Hurst on the second hole of a sudden-death playoff to become the youngest player (19 years old) to win an LPGA event since Amy Alcott won the 1975 Orange Blossom Classic.
She carded a total of eight top-20 finishes and tied for 12th at the U.S. Women's Open.
